Laramie County Community Partnership
The mission of the Laramie County Community Partnership (LCCP) is to maximize resources and influence change to improve conditions of well-being for people in aramie County. The LCCP is a coalition of nearly 70 agencies dedicated to sharing resources, strengthening capacity, and collaboratively serving the vulnerable residents of Laramie County, Wyoming. Initiatives have addressed a wide range of issues, from housing, to health to transportation. Through thoughtful analysis of data we focus our efforts on systemic change.
For nearly 20 years the LCCP has served as a convener to bring local organizations together, to focus effort and resources, and influence meaningful change in the community. The LCCP plays a critical role in conducting Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) and Community Health Improvement Plans (CHIP). The Partnership then mobilizes "Action Teams" to address priority issues identified by the community.
Who We Are
A diverse partnership is necessary in order to assess our community’s needs and plan how to address those needs. Laramie County organizations have a long history of working together. Those partnerships were formalized in 1997 under the umbrella of the Healthier Laramie County Community Partnership (LCCP). Today, the completely volunteer-driven LCCP consists of nearly 65 partners, comprised of human service organizations, private-sector individuals, faith-based groups, funders and local and state government representatives dedicated to serving vulnerable residents throughout the county as part of a comprehensive planning effort.
For nearly 20 years the LCCP has acted as a facilitator to organize the community, encourage collaborative and integrated effort and influence change in Laramie County. We have a cohort of dedicated partners who are committed to creating positive change within the community. It is a group that strives for excellence, used data to drive decision making and implements evidenced based practices to move the needle on important issues. As a community coalition, we are looking to achieve unprecedented results that will make Laramie County the healthiest county in Wyoming.

Community Needs Assessment
Every three years the community takes on the task of completing a Community Health Needs Assessment. With the Laramie County Community Partnership (LCCP) and Cheyenne Regional Medical Center acting as conveners, a steering committee with a broad representation of the community completes the assessment and subsequent Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). The steering committee includes individuals and organizations representing various fields and specialties, all with a focus on making a positive difference in the community. The process used for the assessment and improvement plan are the six steps developed by the Association for Community Health Improvement (ACHI). The steering committee uses a combination of ACHI and the Hanlon Pickett method for ranking the metrics used. The community is currently in the process of completing the 2015 Needs Assessment. There are certain issues (youth homelessness for one) that have vocal and passionate champions in the community that are leading the way on addressing those issues.
